I want to know if I need to update to IE 11? Why do I get a pop-up everyday telling me to do that?


Use Caution. Pop-ups can appear for various reasons and they may not be legitimate.

To check for updates for your Windows computer, simple go to Start > Control Panel > Windows Update and choose to check for updates. If you have updates, go ahead and choose to install them.

It's important for the security of your computer to have an up-to-date browser, which is why you should get the newest, especially since they are free or included like IE (Internet Explorer).

Other good browsers include:

Firefox
Download Firefox Free Web Browser
Chrome:

Opera:
